Mercantile Directory of Virginia City, Gold Hill, etc. by Collins, 1864
Outstanding online reference of the third directory of Nevada Territory, which follows Kelley's two Nevada Territorial Directories of 1862 and 1863. The Collins Directory is the only online primary source of territorial information at this critical height of the Comstock boom immediately following the discovery of the rich gold and silver deposits at the Gould & Curry. The formats presented here are infinitely useable, inclusive of a page by page view as if reading the actual directory, or easy to use PDF's of single pages. The original directory itself is exceptionally rare, found only in a few institutional libraries, thus this rendering is very valuable.
